Some basic details:
archlinux 3.9.3-1 xmonad 0.11 urxvt 9.18
I can get urxvt to load my desired font manually using:
urxvt -fn "xft:Ubuntu Mono"
However, I'm unable to get this font to load through ~/.Xdefaults - Here's what I have at the moment:
Xft*dpi: 96 Xft*antialias: true Xft*rgba: rgb Xft*hinting: true Xft*hintstyle: hintslight URxvt*transparent: true URxvt*shading: 40 URxvt*saveLines: 12000 URxvt*foreground: White URxvt*background: Black URxvt*scrollBar: false Urxvt*font: xft:Ubuntu Mono Urxvt*boldFont: xft:Ubuntu Mono
All other urxvt settings load fine, except the font. I've tried many different combinations like:
xft:Ubuntu Mono:pixelsize=14:style=regular etc, but nothing seems to work.
xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults,
xrdb -load ~/.Xdefaults, and restarting X entirely. I've also tried these settings in ~/.Xresources, however urxvt seems to ignore those settings entirely. What am I missing?
